I have never had an apple product with this terrible of quality. For $50 should definitely last longer especially not used much and always put up when not in use. Would not recommend wasting your money.

      Poor Video Quality and No Audio Out of Headphone Jack

      Instead of outputting native HDMI, this little device seems to take the output from the phone, compress it, and pass along an HDMI signal. The result is the vid Instead of outputting native HDMI, this little device seems to take the output from the phone, compress it, and pass along an HDMI signal. The result is the video quality is far below good HD quality. Expect all kinds of artifacts and other issues including lower than expected HD resolution. This is not a device that can replace a good streaming alternative, which is too bad considering Apple's devices are more than powerful enough for that purpose. For those of us hoping to use our phones or iPads to connect in business settings to display content, be aware that audio is only transmitted through the lightening port when this is plugged in, which gives no audio out through the headphone jack. That means that if you are plugging this into a projector's HDMI input, you are likely going to lose any sound that goes along with your presentation (or anything else) as most quality projectors do not have speakers. This is a big oversight in my opinion as lots of devices keep the analog audio out of a headphone jack or the like live while also transmitting sound over HDMI. Similarly, sound is not also sent via bluetooth when this is plugged in, so that's not an alternative either. I have both the bluetooth and headphone jack options open on my laptop, which has an HDMI out. So much for replacing a good old laptop.

      Couldn't give zero stars...

      Bought this to watch movies up north, off grid. Could not get it to work. Never had an issue with my old Sunday HD. Not a typical user, Apple: BSEE and MCUS, su Bought this to watch movies up north, off grid. Could not get it to work. Never had an issue with my old Sunday HD. Not a typical user, Apple: BSEE and MCUS, such a thing is but a trivial toy. With the "writing out" of 3rd party competing devices with recent IOS updates, and the recent revelation that IOS was designed to intentionally slow oder logins I suspect the greedy folks who make policy at Apple of intentionally hobbling Netflix, too. Really.disappointed in Apple these days and with each revelation of their view of customers. Apple users always felt like they were apart of a special have. This adapter, the planned obsolescence issue, and what appears to be intentional hobbling of non -Apple hardware and services shows that Apple view their user base only as sheep to be fleeced. $50 for something that doesn't work. So many negative reviews, yet still available at a store near you...

      This product as me thinking about a droid or Google phone

      I dropped $40 on this item. Works on one iPhone 6. Inexplicably does not work on another iPhone 6 using same OS and settings. Sad and despicable.
